sparkle in grey - mexico (cd)


ARTIST // sparkle in grey
LABEL // grey sparkle (it)
CAT // gscd004cd


It is hard to define the true nature of "Mexico", with its dark hues, but possibly not as melancholy as the previous works. The title speaks of escape, of shelter, a place anything but quiet, a land of contrast where desperate violence is generated by the economic gap. The multi-coloured graphics and naf artwork of the band suggest a glimmer of hope, possibly as a means to deceive the audience. The same artwork, entirely hand drawn, was used to make an animated video for the song "Goose Game" []. The reasons why that song belongs to the previous record, and it took "Mexico" three years before it was released, are questions that will remain unanswered. Joseph Sannicadro (THE SILENT BALLET) wrote "A hybrid of post-rock, electro-acoustics and pop, unlike anything else. Mexico may be the bands magnum opus. Highly recommended."
